    I always refer to the version number, because that can be found on any device easily with one command. If I need more info, then I refer to the build and revision numbers.

    I always refer to the previous update as A18U, I don't use numbers (nor will I use them) and to this update I have always called it O18U (and I will continue to do so), without numbers.

    But both of those names have numbers in them. I do not understand what you mean. If you say A18U without numbers then you call the update AU? Who but you even understands that AU means version 1803?

    This is build's "Name"

    Everything else is just confusion.

    I agree, but the YYMM designation is best followed by the build .XXX(XX)

    Microsoft also have this incorrect because people see a fraction (not me, but others have commented)

    e.g. 17763.55 is higher than 17763.107 and they also go into 4 and 5 digits, each one tripping over the next

    there's plenty wrong at Redmond not least the naming conventions. Flies in the face of software convention from time immemorial.

    But then, Windows 1 0.17763.107 would be better, making all versions alpha.

    Trick is to see not as numbers but merely numerals.

    I don.t think they look at it like decimals. so 107 >55 .

    Dashes instead of dots would be less confusing. Maybe

    @CountMike

    Now youve got me really confused

    Im currently running this version 1809 without expiry date

    Windows 10 October 2018 Update rollout now paused-1809.png

    I think actual current "normal" release is still 1803 -- so I'm confused as to what I'm running on this computer now --it's obviously not the current insider build of 1809 as that expires in Dec and certainly not the standard 1803 build I'm running on other machines.


    Really confused now by Ms -- I'm sure I'm not the only one. I do take loads of backups so restoring won't be a problem.

    Cheers

    Ancedotal responses. People I talk to have found the numbering system confusing, maybe not to those realising the significance.

    You must have the "Paused" 1809 and not even with last update (107)
